We actually ate at this restaurant every night we were in town. The Italian Salad with house dressing is wonderful...and so is all else on their menu. Chicken Bryan...my wife's fave...and I love the Chicken Parm or Veal Marsala......nice staff..very friendly. One a single complaint...stay away from their sausages. Meatballs yum-o.....sausage, not so much.,...

This is the best place to go with family because there is something for everyone here. It's really tasty and I like the deal they had called Amore Monday ... in that deal I got an appetizer and my chicken pasta. It's full of flavor and garlic!

Stayed in Allentown on the way from the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains to New York City. We booked a hotel in the area of Carrabba's and the restaurant was recommended by the hotel.

We started going here recently after not going for years and we were pleasantly surprised. The food is consistently good, the drinks are generous and the staff is well trained. Easily our favorite Italian restaurant in the area. I am gluten intolerant and have no trouble finding things to eat.

For once I was enjoying al dente pasta in the US, which is rather uncommon. The service was very friendly and the wine OK. They even had an esspresso and a grappa to complete the diner. The only thing you have to keep in mind, tell the waiter to slow down the speed of the meals, otherwise you are finished... More

Perfectly mellowed atmosphere for talking intimately or celebrating with friends and family. Their flexible seating areas are accommodating to solo visits, couples and groups. Their service staff are classy and responsive to your needs. Love this place.

The food is very good and you are fed well here! They usually get very crowded so call ahead or get here before 5:30, or you will need to wait. But then again they do have a bar area so you can start your evening.

Chip makes it happen. The restaurant is always busy even during the evenings during week days. Great place for parties and the staff works hard to make sure that everyone has a good time.

Very good food and service. Only wish restaurant would go back to some of the old time favorites. Amore Monday with my favorite 5 cheese ravioli has gone from the menu.
